Peak District Goldeneye 1:126.000

Our maps are double-sided, printed on an A2 sheet with a concertina fold. This allows for easy folding and folding, and an ease of access to the mapping. The material is rain and tear-resistant. Our early maps were designed at the scale of 2 miles to 1 inch/1:126,720. The later designs along with digitalisation are 1: 100,000. We were encouraged by the Cycle Touring Club to convert our cartography toward the cycle market (to replace the out-of-print Bartholomew series). As time and the series progressed we have added more data: The National Cycle Network routes, Regional Routes, and Traffic-Free Family Routes, as and when they are developed. These routes are in addition to the Circular Routes Goldeneye Commissioned at the outset of our publishing schedule. We are also adding to new editions; bike shops, cycle hire, and tea rooms, along with the tourist attractions already featured. Our plan is to make available digital versions for cell phones and tablets and to update, on an annual basis.

National Cycle Network (NCN)
This is a linked series of traffic-free paths and traffic-calmed roads being developed across the UK linking town centres and the countryside. The so-named route numbers do not always join up as the overall planned route has not yet been completed and sometimes they overlap with other routes. sustrans.org.uk

The Peak District is a remarkable place. In the north, there is the Dark Peak with its upturned horseshoe of high, gritstone moors and crags, descending southwards to the east and west of a limestone plateau into the softer, pastoral landscape of the White Peak itself incised by the valleys of the Derbyshire Dales. These differing landscapes offer some of the best country lane cycling in Britain. The Tissington, Manifold and High Peak Trails are some of the longest converted railway tracks in the country and are a great way for families and inexperienced cyclists to enjoy traffic-free cycling. Despite a long and complex history stretching back through the Romans to prehistoric times, until relatively recently The Peak remained a wild, upland region, unknown to all but a few outsiders. The growth of the great industrial conurbations surrounding it, and the associated development of the railways changed all that - though it was appropriately the development of the bicycle that gave the workers the freedom to escape from the noise and pollution of mill, factory and steelworks to the clean air of the hills. In 1951 The Peak became Britain’s first National Park.

Being my ‘own patch’, I have a particularly close relationship with The Peak District. I moved here to climb some 40-years ago, and as my interest in cragging waned, mountain biking in all forms; on and off-road gradually took its place and I began to explore this unique landscape in a wholly different way. I served my apprenticeship with two close friends – Andy Birkby and Kim George who knew every lane, track and bridleway by heart, and rarely looked at a map. I owe much of my original knowledge of these routes to them – my thanks for that, and for so many, unforgettable days. Happy Cycling, Al Churcher

To follow the Tissington and High Peak Trails to Buxton. Then along the Longdendale Trail to Holmfirth. The whole 571km/355 mile route is considered one of the finest and most magical routes in Britain.

Churnet Valley.  Herewith, a flat dismantled railway line ideal for cycling and walking. The track runs beside the river alive with wildlife affording fine countryside views. From Denstone to Oakamoor, a 7km/4 mile sojourn. Ramblers Retreat Cafe. (D13) 

High Peak Trail. 29km/18-mile cycling and walking trail from Cromford to a point five miles south of Buxton, joining the Tissington Trail at Parsley Hay. The trail uses the trackbed of the Cromford and High Peak Railway which carried stone from the quarries down to the canal at Cromford. Apart from the two steep inclines ascending from Cromford the track is reasonably level and gives extensive views. Cycle hire at Middleton Top and Parsley Hay. (H11) 

Kedleston Hall.  Starting at Markeaton Park the trail enters this National Trust property where its possible to come full-circle although we do not illustrate on the map. (H14) 

Manifold Track. Cycling and walking trail using route of old narrow-gauge railway from Hulme End down the Manifold and up its tributary the Hamps to Waterhouses. (D10) 

Matlock to Rowsley Cycle-Path.  A five-mile path that runs along the Derwent’s river valley. Fine views of the surrounding countryside. Suitable for motorised mobility scooters and pushchairs. Cafe at the Whitworth Park. (H10)

Middlewood Way. 18km/11 mile cycle track, footpath and bridleway using the trackbed of the former Macclesfield – Bollington and Marple Railway. Runs close to the Macclesfield Canal. The route has been landscaped to encourage plants and wildlife and there is much to interest the industrial historian. (A7) 

Monsal Trail. A section of the former Derby – Manchester Railway, at whose construction the philosopher John Ruskin waxed furious but which was later acclaimed as one of Britain’s most beautiful stretches of railway. The 8.5 mile route runs from south of Bakewell to Blackwell Mill, east of Buxton and is suitable for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and wheelchair users. The tunnels have been repaired and resurfaced and are lit by light sensors. Cycle Hire at Blackwell Mill and Hassop Station. (G9 to E8)

Rudyard Reservoir. Linear routes along the east side, as part of the Staffordshire Way, linking to Leek. It is possible to cycle the 5-mile circuit but you have to dismount at the north-west corner as it crosses private land.   (A10)

Sett Valley Trail. 4km/2.5 mile trail, New Mills to Hayfield along the disused railway track bed. Affording attractive countryside, plant and bird life with relics of an industrial past. The routes that go north to Matley Moor, and south across The Roych are for experienced off-roaders only, and not for young families. (B5)

Tissington Trail. 21km/13 mile cycling and walking trail using the disused railway from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay. The trail is well surfaced for cycling and because of the inherent limitation of gradients on railways it demands little exertion. It maintains a high altitude with extensive views. Cycle hire at Ashbourne and Parsley Hay. (F12 to E9)
